Looks like someone got in Trump's ear and convinced him that if he didn't let Emily Murphy sign off on starting the transition, he'd get raked over the coals for months to come.


Well that's the story now.  Before he tweeted out that he was graciouslly allowing the transition to start, Ms. Murphy came out and said she had independently came to the conclusion that the transition needed to start now.  Not, you know, when Biden was the clear winner or anything. 

Ironbite-with one tweet, Trump made Emily Murphy his bitch and threw her under the bus.  I love it.

Given what happened to Christopher Krebs, I doubt Emily Murphy would've signed off on starting the transition without at least some sort of approval from Trump.

WITH PREJUDICED! 

Ironbite-that's cold man.

I like to call that kind of ruling "Polite legal speak for 'get the fuck out, now'".
And it's the most beautiful way to see this shit get smacked down with.

Trump won because he was highly successful in speaking to disenfranchised rural blue collared voters who have been largely feeling ignored for a long time. Their jobs have been disappearing for a long time and  what once was large booming towns filled with steel mills, or mines, or manufacturing plants are slowly turning to ghost towns filled with meth dens and crumbling infrastructure. Trump spoke out against NAFTA and TPP which a large population of middle america hate and blame for jobs going over seas. Truth is these jobs have been starting to leave way before NAFTA became a thing. Trump and Clinton were already both highly disliked candidates. What hurt Clinton was that the same people who came out for Obama didn't come out for Clinton this time. Southern blacks and younger voters didn't feel energized by Clinton's more moderate democrat stance. Blacks didn't feel they were helped out much from eight years with Obama, so why would they turn out for someone who doesn't understand them. Younger voters are growing more progressive and Clinton just seemed more status quo.
Trump was able to excite a large group of voters that were previously ignored, and they came out in droves to vote for him. Not all of them are racists, not all of them hate foreigners, but some feel he can bring their jobs back and they were willing to over look the dangerous borderline racists, sexist shit Trump has said in the past.
The truth is Trump is not going to bring the jobs back, and any jobs he tries to force to stay here will be costly. Wall street big wigs will fight him on that. He can try to impose tariffs on businesses importing goods into the US that manufactured in foreign countries, but that will just end up hurting the consumer with higher prices in an already stagnated economy with stagnated wages. Republicans want to impose tax cuts on the extremely wealthy again which is just going to hurt the middle class even more. He's not going to be able to build a wall. Republicans hate spending on infrastructure and they certainly are not going to spend billions on a pipe dream that will most likely take way past Trumps four years in office to even start development, and no Mexico is not going to pay for it. The same will happen on deportation.
Every candidate makes promises or goals that they want to accomplish that will never pass, like Obama and Gitmo. The problem is Trump spoke of grandious promises that will most likely never come to fruition. A lot of voters will most likely see this and not turn out to vote next time.

Wow this is what I posted just over four years ago. I ended up being right about a lot of it.

True but since it's not about him I don't know why he would care? He might do it, but he would just be bitching and crying about the "fraudulent" election the whole time and probably talk shit about Georgia.

On the other hand, the one thing he does like doing when it comes to politics is campaigning. He loves drawing crowds and having people hang on his every word. That's the Trump that McConnell is trying to bring to Georgia.

Yeah if he even does that at all. He doesn't seem to be interested in doing any sort of governing since he lost except to play golf. He's a resentful fuck who probably views Georgia as dead to him since they chose to vote for Biden.

It's why McConnell, Cornyn, Thune and the like are dancing around the question of whether Trump has actually lost. They all know he has, they just don't want to piss him off and have him sit at Mar-a-Lago and sulk when they could potentially have him holding rallies in Georgia and getting his base excited for vote for Perdue and Loeffler.
